Advent


Scripture For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from henceforth even for ever. Isaiah 9:6-7

Prescription For Trying Times: A Poem More Strange than the angel who eclipsed your ordinary life to see his reflection in the dark of your eyes. More strange than when god thumped in your belly and tugged at your breast, hungry for earth, for what he had made. Strange to hear the command to take and eat of his body just as he had your own. That in their mouths you too were dissolving, your blood draining into thick and useless throats. Your nourishment drips from his side, from the mouth that sucked your breast. A hand flinches toward your chest—a strange gesture you discover is your own. (by Kristin George Bagdanov)

An Advent Prayer Dear Sweet Baby Jesus, You invite us to weakness, to reorient our faulty and fragile understanding of power. You invite us to dependency, to resist the temptation toward prideful individualism. You invite us to humility, to re-prioritize our concerns toward your kingdom. You invite us to poverty, to rectify our idolatry and consumerism. You invite us to yourself, to rest. Amen

(Evan Rosa, Biola University Center For Christian Thought)
